Questions and Quarrels (Isle of Man Ghostly Cozy #17)

Questions and Quarrels(Isle of Man Ghostly Cozy #17)by Diana Xarissa I liked this one but for some reason, it didn’t hold my attention as much as the other ones did. Whether that’s due to my crumbling attention span (always a strong possiblity) or this book, I couldn’t tell you. It had a great plot; a building Fenella inherited from Mona (who received it as a gift from Max) has been empty and seemingly forgotten ever since the candle company that used it closed down. While taking a look inside with her advocate Doncan, Fenella finds a mummified body in one … Continue reading Questions and Quarrels (Isle of Man Ghostly Cozy #17)

May Day (Murder-by-Month Mystery #1)

May Day(Murder-by-Month Mystery #1)by Jess Lourey I read this several years ago but apparently didn’t write a review. In fact, it’s been so long since I read it that it felt like I was reading it again for the first time but with full knowledge of the characters and their stories. Made for an interesting read! I suggested this for the r/CozyMystery May book club read after I decided to re-read the series before I get into the final book (I’ve been putting it off because I’m not ready to say goodbye to Battle Lake and Mira. *sob*) I love … Continue reading May Day (Murder-by-Month Mystery #1)

Inspector Chopra and the Million-Dollar Motor Car

Inspector Chopra and the Million-Dollar Motor Car(Baby Ganesh Agency Investigation #3.5)by Vaseem Khan I needed an Indian author for one of the r/CozyMystery Book Bingo squares and someone suggested this one. It’s novella length, so I was able to read it in an hour or so, but for such a short book, it packed an entertaining plot. Set in Mumbai, India, Chopra is a police inspector who had to retire due to a heart issue but is unwilling to give up the job he loved, he opened a detective agency that runs out of the restaurant he owns. One morning … Continue reading Inspector Chopra and the Million-Dollar Motor Car

Derailed Plot: A Travel Tragedy Mystery #1

Derailed Plot: A Travel Tragedy Mysteryby Summer Campbell I picked this one up for the r/CozyMystery Discord book club read for April. And, as a chronic procrastinator, I waited until the last days of April to read and review it. That’s how I roll. In a nutshell, Astrid runs off from the home she shares with her doctor husband after catching him in bed with one of her colleagues. She joins up with her friend Sam, a photographer who is working on a coffee table book of hidden tourist gems in Europe and the last chapter involves taking a week … Continue reading Derailed Plot: A Travel Tragedy Mystery #1
